Assembling a Wax Flower Hair Comb Tutorial
In this tutorial I'm assembling a wax flower hair comb with the pretty picks I made in the last tutorial. This romantic hair comb would make a beautiful bridal hairpiece.
Instructions for making the wax flowers and picks are here and here.
- 2 Wax flower picks
- Button thread
- White glue, paintbrush
- Hair comb
Step 1: Knot button thread at the end of the comb
You can also use wire or embroidery floss.
Step 2: Arrange flower pick to cover half of the comb
The alternative way of doing this is to just make a very long flower pick to cover the entire comb. I wanted to have buds coming out of each end of the comb with more flowers toward the center, so I am using two short flower picks.
Step 3: Thread between the flowers
Work the thread in between blooms, and then in between the points of the hair comb. If you have a particularly thick flower pick, add a needle, so you can just push it through near the top of the comb.
Step 4: Add a second flower pick, meeting at the middle
Continue wrapping right along, working onto the second pick. Wrap between each point of the comb to the end.
Step 5: Make a loop, and pull the thread through to tie off
Snip off the end of the thread.
Step 6: Dab glue on the knots to seal
